    Wow, not only did I grow from only knowing how to do mortise & tenon old-school, with my tenon saw – I also learned interpretative dance workshop-style! Thanks guys!

    Great video April. I remember making mortice and Tenant joints at school! all them years ago but we had to do it the hard way they wouldn’t let us loose on any power tools. So we had to use a marking out gauge, a Tenant saw and chisel’s it was time consuming and not as reliable as yours.

    You can use your drill press Just like a dedicated mortising machine. The are several makes and models there is one available at lowes for $112.00 DELTA Drill Press Mortising Attachment with 4-Piece Chisel and Bit Set. I have one I got from Ebay it was from China. and it was pretty much the same as the Delta but for much less. I can’t remember how much but it was enough that I bought the Ebay one. Works great. I chose this because I had limited space and already have a good drill press with extension table.

    Does a dowel joint count as a crude form of mortise and tenon?

    For the drill press tenons wouldn’t it be easier to round the tenons instead of squaring the mortises?

    You can also use a dado blade set for making the tenons.

    Hi, the joint has been around 100’s of years and yet power tools haven’t, so… Yep hand cut mortis and tenon joints! We got to make them in ‘shop’ at school. We called it ‘woodworking’ class.

    There is also the option of purchasing a mortising attachment for a normal drill press rather than buying a machine specific to that task. However, excellent video and thanks for the ideas.

    Delta sells a tenoning jig that works great and isn’t too pricey.

    A Tenon saw, chisel and a motice gauge is all you need. Although I’m sure they have different names in the US.
